  • Sounds like he has anal fissures, they are quite common, especially in those that have big BMs. A call to the Dr is always a good idea though, just in case:)

  • iwould call a doctor but it is somewhat common for litte ones that dont do that often to tear. it can happen to adults too but we can deal more easily with constipation than kids can

  • My friend is going through this with her son. He keeps holding it in because he thinks if he poops its going to hurt so when he finally does then it hurts and sometimes because it is so big he will tear a little bit. I would call the doctor and see if there is a specific diet that they can put him on that will help regulate his BM's.
